Everything will arrive double boxed with enough surrounding packaging to give your order the best chance to arrive in one piece. We also use the best services from our courier partners possible. All of our cocktails are made to order and some contain only the freshest ingredients – so the sooner they get to you the better they'll taste!

There are just estimates though as we aren't always aware of any delays in services from our shipping parnters. If time is a factor, always go Express!
Deliveries are handled by our third party delivery partners, AusPost and DHL, with tracking provided for each order. For more rural/remote suburbs, we've found that couriers may only make the rounds every few days. We recommend you contact them directly via the tracking details in your shipping confirmation to get a real time update on your delivery.
Please contact us via: email@example.com with photos of the damage, we will investigate the issue and amend where possible.
As the cocktails are a consumable products, they can only be returned if broken or incorrect. Return for store credit may be possible for non-consumable products – subject to circumstance. Please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss details regarding returns.
If your order is already on its way and has left our warehouse, unfortunately, there isn't much more we can do. We recommend contacting the courier service customer service line directly with the tracking number you would have been provided. Unfortunately, due to the cocktails being a consumable product, we can't offer refunds on late orders.
All packages sent from The Budgie Store come with a 'Permission to leave' notice attached. If you aren't home, the courier will leave it on a safe place if they can, if not, they will either try to redelivery on another day, or leave you a pick up notice for your local post office.
Proof of Age
The Budgie Store does not supply liquor to persons under the age of 8 years old. An age gate is present on our site and all orders will require identification to be shown upon delivery by the recipient, even if this person is not the one who placed the order, where necessary.
Our cocktails have varying shelf-lifes, generally from 1 to 3 months. The ones you receive will have a 'Best Before' guide on the rear label. We always recommend you consume your drinks within a week of you receiving your order to ensure the best possible taste. The Budgie prides themselves on quality cocktails, drinks and products and hence recommend consuming products as soon as possible to fully experience the deliciousness The Budgie offers.
We highly recommend refrigeration of cocktails. Quality and longevity of cocktails improve greatly with refrigeration. We recommend when consuming to have the cocktails as cold as possible.
We recommend consumption immediately after opening the product – or, we suggest enjoying it within a day or 2 at the latest.
All our cocktails have recommended mixing method and glassware pairings on the back and we've added some serving suggestions on our site. Many of our cocktails are designed to be shaken with ice however we understand not everyone has access to a cocktails shaker. Feel free to explore options with shaking the cocktail (protein shakers work great) otherwise we recommend serving as cold as possible and serving over ice.
Best way to go about what cocktail you might like is what do you usually drink? This is the question all our bartenders love to ask! Is it Vodka? Gin? Rum? Whiskey? Tequila? Search by category and pick the one that sounds best to you! If you need any suggestions, head over to our socials for a look at some already made or send us a message and ask!
